Free-Agent Spotlight: Stephen Drew

Zachary D. RymerMLB Lead WriterSeptember 14, 2016

Shortstop is the most important defensive position on the infield. Get a good one in the mix, and you’ve got something going.

And that, come to think of it, is not such a bad lead-in to a sales pitch for a free-agent shortstop like, for example, Stephen Drew.

For the second time in as many years, Drew is a free agent. He was merely looking for a chance to prove himself last winter and ended up doing so with the Boston Red Sox. As a result, he now finds himself looking for a multiyear deal that will pay him the big bucks.

MLB Lead Writer Zachary D. Rymer is here to dish on Drew’s free agency, from his projected salary to his primary selling points to his red flags all the way down to his potential suitors.
